Eleven troopers led by Gayle hiked and showshoed to Upper Rochester Falls today.  It is too early in the season to get close to the falls, and with a windchill of -15C, we opted for lunch back in the shelter of the bush.  PHOTOS

Spanish American, November 15, 2014

We could have used our snowshoes today on our hike over the old Spanish American mine site.  The fluffy stuff was covered in a thin crust of ice that made for tricky walking at times.  Glimpses of sun and good company made for an enjoyable morning.  PHOTOS

Dension Road, November 10, 2014

Commentary and photos by Donna C.
A happy, chatty and" layered up for the cold and snow" group of 16 hikers led by Donna made their way all the way up Denison Road and return.  It was a " quick" photo shot of the group because the wind was very cold.  George, Chuck and Don trudged across a field to quickly check out Benner Lake  and rejoined us for a lunch at the gate. Diane and Shirley looked like they were wishing for Florida. PHOTOS

Nordic TMA & Westner Lake, November 3, 2014

Commentary and photos by Donna C.
A "summer-like" day motivated 14 hikers, led by Heather,  to explore the road going into Nordic tailings, and kept hiking right to Westner Lake.  We enjoyed the sunshine sitting on a hill overlooking Westner Lake.  Paavo looked like a prospector hammering on what we found out was chaga for his tea and some of the "boys" ( haha) just had to play in the puddles by breaking the ice that had formed on top of them. PHOTOS

Cinder Lake, November 1, 2014

Photos by Astrid T.
A bit early for the white stuff, but oh so pretty as an even dozen road hiked to the top of the dam off Cinder Lake Road.  We nixed having lunch at the end of Stollery lane in favour of a calmer, out of the wind, location.  Thanks Donna!  PHOTOS
